Alexana by Revana Family Estate


  • "I tasted the formidably priced recent releases of Dr. Madaiah Revana’s six-year-old, Dundee Hills Alexana project (named for his daughter, and with its 56 acres of vines located on Warden Hill) in the company of Lynn Penner-Ash, who has been overseeing vinification at her facility. (The Revana Family Vineyard in Napa relied until last year on a similar collaboration with Heidi Peterson Barrett.) For the impending harvest, this estate will operate out of its own new facility and Penner-Ash says her involvement will become 'less hands-on.'" (David Schildknecht, The Wine Advocate)

Basic Info

Alexana Winery was born of Dr. Madaiah Revana’s love of the great wines of Burgundy. In the spring of 2005, Dr. Revana began a search for both the ideal region and an experienced winemaker with the goal of producing Pinot Noirs that could rival those from Burgundy. His search ended in Oregon’s Willamette Valley. Alexana is named after Dr. Revana’s daughter, Alexandra. Dr. Revana acquired an 80-acre property located in the Dundee Hills American Viticultural Area. Known for its distinct geography and diverse micro-climates, the Dundee Hills is one of the most widely recognized premium Pinot Noir producing AVAs in Oregon. Alexana Wines are a reflection of Oregon’s cool grape-growing climate and have become known for their elegance, balance and character.
